The genre of shounen has always been the backbone of the anime world.Garnering recognition on the international scale and allowing for further exposure of the culture than any other genre.Needless to say for a veteran anime watcher and shounen lover like myself,bleach is one of the worst shounen i have ever seen.
The shounen genre have always been criticized for being too cliche and repetitive based on it's plot and characterization.A notion i have always found to be unfair since almost all genre acquire a level of repetitiveness over time and originality become harder to obtain.But the main issue i have with bleach is that

A perfectly good example of how bad characters can ruin a potentially good anime.
Makoto Konno is an average high school teen who one day due to a freak accident find out that when she vigorously leap she can go back in time.She then uses this power to her benefit to undo any past mistakes .She will eventually find out that such power come with grave consequences.
Firstly the characters are among the most boring/average that you will come across in the world of anime and just didn't have the charisma needed to carry what is an otherwise interesting plot.The stupidity of the main character and how ...

This anime is unique in that although on the surface its supremely average it carries a deeper underlying theme about human society and the destruction that prevails as a consequence of man's desire for technological advancement.For a young girl called Eve the sanctuary of E.Y.E.S is all that she has ever known.Daily telepathic training with the other girls of the sanctuary is the only thought that has ever filled her mind as she and all her friends have no memory of their past or any existence beyond the sanctuary.
Her life will change forever as she meets a young man,a rebel from the outskirt's ...

Something strange is happening in Tokyo Bay.Underwater labors are being destroyed,people are turning up dead and speculations begin to spiral once a picture of a strange creature is spotted.Detectives Kusumi and Hata must uncover the culprit of the Tokyo Bay terrorism while at the same time uncover a possible government coverup.
There's three main premise you expect from a Patlabor title;brilliant animation,a strong storyline and carefully choreographed mecha action.Patlabor movie 3 does a good job of blending all these.
The animation is top notch.Drawing are done with great detail and rich colour.The only minor flaw would be the character design which at times looks shoddy ...

Really enjoyed this one,nothing spectacular but with enough flavor and style to keep it interesting.Its your typical ninja anime with your evil emperor want to take over japan by wiping out the ninja clan .Think of it as a shorter version of ninja scroll with lesser quality animation.What made this anime so unique is that one faction of the warfare is fighting with guns,tanks,bombs and laser while the other guys are using swords and throwing knifes,talk about mismatch huh.The fighting scenes were really well done showing great detail and went well with the crisp old school drawing animation .
The characters were your regular" cookie cutter" ...

An anime so awful it deserve a warning much more than a review.Christopher Chiaki gets transported to the past by a enslaved village people as they believe him to be a legendary warrior called garzeys wing.He helps them to fight there captive in bloody encounters.
Well kiddies if you were expecting something deeper to your story you're better off watching hentia.the plot is so paper thin that's its almost non- existent,yet at the same time being convoluted and silly.What confusing was even though Christopher was transported to another time period a version of him was still left in his time and they communicated by ...
